It does not come until the end of this utterly dreary episode, but it is a glimmer of hope. Until then, Morgan is not handling the download of the Intersect very …Read On »

NBC’s CHUCK, now in its fifth season in its new timeslot on Fridays at 8 PM, is the brainchild of creators/executive producers Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz. The title character, played by Zachary Levi, started out as a nerdy employee at the Buy More who was transformed into an inexperienced super spy when his brain became filled with the Intersect, a wealth of espionage knowledge that also (at the end of Season Two) included fighting skills. Over the years, Chuck fell in love with and finally married his spy handler Sarah, played by Yvonne Strahovski, and befriended grumpy fellow spy …Read On »

Stars: Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Adam Baldwin, Joshua Gomez, Vic Sahay, Scott Krinsky, Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin, Mark Christopher Lawrence, Bonita Friedericy Distributor: Warner Home Video Suggested Retail Price: $59.98 It’s hard to hate CHUCK, even when it sometimes veers wildly off course. Yet, when all is said and done, CHUCK – THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON still provided some pretty great episodes during a massive (and occasionally uneven) 24-episode season. Season 4 gets off to a rocky start with Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) constantly having relationship woes as they deal with their forthcoming wedding. This is where …Read On »

Exclusive: CHUCK star Zachary Levi talks TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan and Check would have thought about the sequel

Zachary Levi at the World Premiere of TANGLED

Garrett Hedlund in TRON: LEGACY | © 2010 Walt Disney Pictures With CHUCK being a very geek savvy show, and displaying the poster for 1982’s TRON in the room of Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) since Season 1, it was a bit strange not to have any mention of TRON: LEGACY in any of the Season 4 episodes. Granted, Warner Bros. owns CHUCK and Disney owns TRON, but couldn’t there have been a little bit of a crossover? While speaking recently with Levi himself, ASSIGNMENT X asked him about TRON: LEGACY and what Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Chuck probably thought about …Read On »
